Quality Assurance Program
Mobius takes great pride in the Quality Assurance Program it has established for the overall company and we will do the same for every Task Order in which we perform work under Seaport-e. Upon award for new work, we believe it is crucial that the effort begin in a manner consistent with corporate values, intent and aim. For this reason, a Mobius senior staff member (or members) normally deploys to the new work location to establish an initial operational capability (IOC). An important part of developing this IOC includes “e;on-boarding” and inculcation of our shared values in new personnel as part of their reception and integration process. Another major piece of the IOC effort is the development of a site-specific Quality Control Plans (QCP) that includes metrics for instituting best practices and realizing cost savings.
The company employs a consistent approach at all its efforts where it provides services to DoD components. As a standard practice, Mobius always submits its on-site QCP to an authorized Government representative for approval whenever it is the prime contractor. Typically, Mobius QCP’s have a twofold purpose:
- To document compliance with project/task order requirements and regulatory guidelines in a manner that meets the criteria established in the Government Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan (QASP); and,
- To provide a vehicle for sustained, documented improvement – most importantly when it affects best practices and potential cost savings.
The foundation of each Mobius QCP rests upon documented management oversight in two fundamental areas that are loosely defined as follows:
- Mission Essential Contract Requirements (MECRs): critical project/task order tasks or requirements in which a shortcoming or failure could…
- Seriously jeopardize the ability of the customer to accomplish its mission;
- Result in unnecessary or avoidable costs to the Government; or,
- Put an individual at risk of injury or health.
- Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI): focused on the supporting processes and/or manner in which MECRs are provided to our customer with a view for…
- Improving the quality of the product or service provided;
- Reducing the cost associated with delivery of the product or service; or,
- Reducing the time required to provide the product or service.
MECRs are first developed during the IOC phase of the project/task order and are approved by the authorized Government representative. Once approved, MECRs will not typically change unless there is a change to the project/task order, a negotiated Memorandum of Agreement, or other document that authorizes a change to the negotiated work statement.
Each MECR has a number of Key Supporting Tasks (KSTs) that describe specific actions, processes or systems that must be in place in order to accomplish the MECR. As a general rule, Quality Control Inspection Reports (QCIRs) are focused at the KST level in order to isolate potential issues and areas in need of improvement. Each site-specific QCP identifies the number and frequency of QCIR’s to be submitted for each KST.
Mobius QCP’s enable us to sustain CQI in a deliberate, documented way. Typically, Mobius corporate leadership conducts collaborative reviews of QCIR’s with on-site management once a quarter to identify specific CQI focus areas for the upcoming quarter. Authorized Government representatives participate in these reviews at several of our sites. We have found these joint reviews to be extremely helpful in maintaining a spirit of transparency, cooperation, and trust with our customer. In addition, the communication engendered by these reviews does much to aid in the early identification and resolution of issues before they reach the problem stage.
